I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to share with you, my fellow authors, my publishing knowledge and experience, and to keep you up to date with the latest news and trends in publishing.
I’m here to offer you assistance and guidance in the hope that I can steer you away from the many pitfalls that I have experienced during my own publishing journey.
“What is this Publicious thing that sounds like delicious, and who is this bloke?” I hear you cry.
Publicious is a company run by self-published authors for self-published authors. We are currently helping authors realise their dreams worldwide, including, Australia, USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand and Brazil. So no matter where you are we can help you.
Through our own publishing journeys we've learned the dos and the don’ts of the publishing industry and have a genuine interest in passing our knowledge on to our fellow authors. You can learn all about Publicious and myself here: http://www.publicious.com.au/aboutus.html
Some of the many topics we are going to be discussing over the coming months are:
• Getting that manuscript finished.
• The self-editing process
• Working with a professional editor
• Types of publishing
• What most authors don't understand about publishing
• What you need to know if you are considering self-publishing.
I’ll be expanding on this during the next post, but here’s my first tip for getting that manuscript finished:
STOP PROCASTINATING AND JUST DO IT!
There’s always something more important to do right?
‘Oh I’m going to start writing until season four of The Game of Thrones has finished.’
‘I really want to but I’m just too busy.’
‘There’s just not enough time in the day.’
In my next post I’ll be sharing with you how I have time to: run my own business, exercise everyday, do those everyday family things (even watch TV – Yes Game of Thrones is cool), socialize and still manage to write at least 1000 words every day.
And you can do it too!
